We speak with Lucio Feuillet, the most contemporary of the musicians of southern Colombia. He gave us his answers, honest, heartfelt, like the music he makes.
In the 2017 Lucio Feuillet changed the rules of the production of Latin / alternative genre albums.
He released "Provinciano", a video-album, an album recorded live in block, a cohesive album from beginning to end in the era of singles releases.
Reviewed as one of the best albums of the year (and the one I personally heard the most during the past year), "Provinciano" changed the rules. He put the stick too high. He created one more problem for independent musicians - as if they did not have enough - in the best sense. How can a more impactful album be made?
The album counts with the participation of its live musicians and singer-songwriter Marta Gómez, the FatsO group, Javier Andrés Mesa (Guafa Trio), Javier Ojeda (Burning Caravan) and Jairo Paz. Recorded on the stage of Mapa Teatro, the atmosphere envelops and gives an intimate solemnity to each song.
It's a huge leap from "Indicio" (2013) his previous album; his current proposal, increasingly refined, highlights his sounds of southern Colombia. The Galeras volcano is always present in its sound, the "Rs" that sound like "CHs" and the Andean music tradition confronting contemporary pop.
It was a great pleasure for us to talk to Lucio and we hope you are fortunate enough to have purchased tickets for the official release of the album. on Friday 2 of March in the Teatro Estudio, of the Teatro Mayor Julio Mario Santo Domingo (Avenida 170 Street No. 67-51 - San José de Bavaria, Bogotá) - For sale in First Row.
In one sentence, how would you describe the music you make.
South, alternative, song and Latin America! It is a music that speaks a little of what I am, what I see and what I want to look for.
What impact does it have to be born next to a volcano?
It is a constant inspiration. We can feel the power of nature daily, the fragility of life and the strong sensitivity for our environment. Also, the volcano teaches us a lot about the value of the word "respect".
